Are You Comfortable?
This past week I had the pleasure of hearing Kimberly Williams Paisley speak. She said something that has stuck with me. She said her mom taught her to be comfortable in uncomfortable situations. What a gift her mom gave her! It’s a reality that many of our minutes in life will be spent doing the uncomfortable. How many of us have heard our kids say they hate school? How about that doctor’s appointment? Think about the checkout line—pretty uncomfortable, right? Please do your kids a favor and allow them to experience uncomfortable. Don’t rescue, reward or regroup every time something is difficult, demanding or even, (within limits) dangerous. My 13 year old grandson had a bike wreck over the weekend resulting in an injury requiring stitches. His prayer in the ER was, “Thank you, God. I didn’t doubt you once the whole time.” I’m so thankful he knew who to turn to when he was confronted with an uncomfortable situation. Have a great week. Do something uncomfortable and let God give you peace. Hugs, 2 mama
